  • In this excerpt, Lowman and Aldrich (2016) suggested strategies for informal conferences with individual students, "preferably during office hours, rather than … after class or on campus" (Just Listen, ¶2). They indicated that the purpose of these sorts of somewhat extended encounters, approximately 10-30 minutes in length (Close the conversation…, ¶1), was empowerment of students to "better understand their situation[s], consider … wider range[s] of options, and make their own decisions about their future[s]" (Just Listen, ¶2). Their suggestions highlighted: active listening, (re-)focusing, moderating distress, avoiding giving advice, closing, and recommending follow-ups for student conferences.Lowman, Joseph; & Aldrich, Howard.

    • powerful languages of the world may express national identities, or they may be the medium for the expression of other collective identities distinct from or even in conflict with the nation
    • Absorption and incorporation may be the preferred option for the powerful; for others – the majority, we suspect – the plurality and diversity of human expression, even within the world’s most powerful languages, is what the intercultural approach, moving from language learning to languaging, can both celebrate and encourage
